Found a guy on ebay selling new 360's for £138 + about £50 P+P. You've got to remember that you might get stung for £50 import fee too - if you order through Play-Asia you will get charged that.

There's no getting round it, if you want to play the coolest shmups you just have to pay through the nose for it :(

This would be awesome. I absolutely love the character desigins in this (no matter what the lolli-goth haters say) and would more than likely pick up the LE.

According to the developers blog Mushi Futari, ESPGII and DDP DFK are also contenders to get ported to the 360. And the developer has stated it would be his preference to port ESPGII to XBLA. Which would be a shame as ESpGII is so good it deserves a full release.
Love the Lolli Goth stuff as well.. I bought 3 0f the Ibara Figures, not the one in your Avatar though:( Think it was Midi and Medi love the one in the Big Dress with the Bobbed hair the forth level boss.. If they did a figure of Amy' of Soul Calibre that would be even better

Yep you're right I'm going to bite the bullet and get a Jap 360, I'll order Raiden Fighters and the Castle of Shikigami 3 to get me started.

It seems we're going to see quite a few shooters on the 360 so I can justify it (just!).

Very nice, going to have to keep an eye out for one of those - I expect silly prices for them!!

Some great advice can be found for UK importers of Jap 360's at this thread:

http://ntsc-uk.domino.org/showthread.ph ... 32&t=73466

I've ordered a JAP 360 myself and I'm anxiously awaiting its arrival (the announcement of the Deathsmiles conversion finally tipped me over the edge).

Maplin sell a great range of step-downs if you come up against the incompatible connector problem.

The 300W version is needed, a PS2 or DC compatible will not work.
